When the stress of being the Washington Bureau Chief for the
Associated Press makes him want to tear his hair out, Ron
Fournier takes time off for a little relaxation therapy at



McCain's Hideaway, his little cabin in the woods.

John McCain, August 14, 2008:
"I don't think there's any doubt the major, major issue is water and can
be as important as oil. So the compact that is in effect, obviously,
needs to be renegotiated over time amongst the interested parties."

John McCain, One Week Later, 'Refines' His Position:
"My recent remarks may have been mistakenly construed as a call to
rescind the Colorado River Compact and commence negotiations for
new water allocations. Let me be clear that I do not advocate
renegotiation of the compact."
Asked what kind of car he drove, McCain didn’t know
and had to ask a nearby aide.
“In all due respect to my colleagues,” John McCain says, "they’re
drinking the Kool-Aid that somehow I have changed positions
on the issues. All I can say is that we all grow. We all grow wiser.
And we all refine our positions.” Since he has 'refined' at least 74
of his positions, John McCain must be one of the wisest men alive.

But he wasn't going to let it upset his composure.

Robin Leach Rises to the Defense of John McCain's Rich and
Famous Lifestyle; Well-Known Cigar Aficionado Says the
Arizona Senator Doesn't Have Nearly Enough Homes to
Accommodate All of His Political Personalities

David Brooks' political guru! I just want to be ME!"
"No, no, you fool, not more--gargh!--water! Do I look

obviously driven by greed and the profit motive. The very idea!"
Senator McCain Finally Succeeds in Distilling
His Campaign Message into a Single Word
According to an unnamed source, neither Roquefort nor French
Dressing is served at the McCain's Hidden Valley Ranch.
The median cost of a house in America today is $220,000.
Even if you could afford to purchase a house at the median
price, you would likely have to take out a 30-year mortgage
to pay for it. By contrast, John and Cindy McCain's budget
for butlers, maids, gardeners, etc., to service and maintain
their many houses is $270,000. That's $50,000 more than
what 50% of America's homeowners pay for their houses.
And remember: the McCain's pay this amount annually.
John McCain says lobbyists are 'birds of prey'. If what he says is
true, he must be fond of them, because 159 of these rapacious
birds are playing key roles in his presidential campaign.
Andrew McCain looks so sad. Is it because he is the CFO of a
beer distributorship whose parent company was sold to some
Belgian bastards? Or is it because he had to resign from the
board of a failing bank whose stock is now worth 50¢ a share?
Someone has noted that John McCain's pet peeve is the sound
of keys jingling. Here's a photo of all his house keys.
Make them jingle.
"Would it be fair to say, Ms. Matalin, that God created you
because no one else on Earth would marry James Carville?"
"Would you like your dinosaur eggs fried, baked,
hard-boiled, or poached?"
John and Cindy would have liked to have you over for a light
supper tonight in their $12 million Phoenix ranch house, but,
alas, they sold it in 2006 so that they could move into a

$4.6 million Phoenix condo.

If, as Senator McCain says, lobbyists are "birds of prey," why is
Randy Scheunemann, a highly-paid lobbyist for another country,
his chief foreign policy adviser? Maybe it's because Randy is a
prominent neoconservative 'hawk'.

And then the day came when John McCain learned that the
Colorado River Compact had nothing to do with makeup and
wasn't something Cindy carried around in her purse.
When Knut got wind of the rumor that Joe Biden or Evan Bayh
might be Obama's choice for vice president, he reacted in the
only way a polar bear can.
"We serve no wine before its time. But when it's time,
boy oh boy, do we come a-runnin'!"
